Notes and Editorial Reviews

"In the Barcarolle it is as if Barenboim is hypnotized by the sound-world he has created for himself … His delicacy, concentration and naturally communicative sonority are marvellous throughout. The warm piano sound is extremely pleasant." - GRAMOPHONE "In the Barcarolle it is as if Barenboim is hypnotized by the sound-world he has created for himself … His delicacy, concentration and naturally communicative sonority are marvellous throughout. The warm piano sound is extremely pleasant." - GRAMOPHONE Read less
